BOTOX® Treatment for Hyperhidrosis
BOTOX® treatment helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis) when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.
Where does the sweat go? Your sweat doesn't go anywhere or get backed up because the sweat simply is not produced in the areas treated with BOTOX®. Remember, the rest of your body is free to produce moisture normally.
A BOTOX® treatment lasts up to 201 days or 6.7 months.
BOTOX® Treatment for Migraine Relief
BOTOX® can reduce or eliminate migraines and tension headaches, sometimes immediately following injection. Though this indication is not FDA approved, the temporary relief from migraines lasting up to 6 months was experienced by patients who received BOTOX® injections for cosmetic purposes.
Allergan, the makers of BOTOX®, are seeking approval for the treatment of chronic daily headache (CDH). Sufferers of CDH experience migraines or intense headaches for 16 + days each month and therapies available are inadequate.
